Hey guys, you might have seen a few of my previous posts about which batteries to get. I have come to the conclusion of either getting a 10s3p or a 12s2p battery from mboards.co. They seem like they are the cheapest ones out there, and they come with BMS and a charger.
The batteries are advertised on their site as:
25mph+ top speed
30mph+ top speed
I do not know which one I should get! I need the range but then again the 12s2p is cheaper and will offer faster acceleration (i think).
Any help is appreciated!
These two are not compatible. I mean I guess they are, but really you need a much larger battery than either of those linked, the amperage supplied is hardly going to get you moving and you’ll probably get just a few short miles of range.
I would recommend 10S4P Samsung 30Q battery at the absolute minimum. 12S would offer a higher top speed an tiny bit more range, keeping all things the same. Either way I strongly recommend you don’t cheap out on the battery when you are buying high power motors and controllers. "
And lastly, M.boards is a bad source for anything. I would steer clear.
